Aerial Work Platforms Market

Construction Projects to Account for Nearly 2/5th of AWP Demand Until 2031: Fact.MR Study

Published : 19 Oct 2021 Industry: Industrial Goods

A recently published report by Fact.MR reveals that the global aerial work platforms market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period (2021-2031), surpassing nearly US$ 16 Bn by 2031. Growth is spearheaded by the ever increasing scope of infrastructure projects across such countries as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico.

From 2016 to 2020, sales of aerial work platforms inclined at a CAGR of 4.2%. Prospects declined significantly in H1 2020, attributed to the recessionary wave ushered in by COVID-19 on the global construction industry. Double-digit contraction figures were projected for both residential and non-residential sectors. However, with the lifting of restrictions, sales have rebounded, expected to clock US$ 9.3 Bn by 2021-end.

Owing to multiple advantages of aerial work platforms such as greater safety and faster maintenance, aerial work platform rental service providers are launching their distribution centers in these regions, further supporting the growth of the aerial work platforms market. Furthermore, manufacturers are emphasizing on incorporating advanced sensor technologies to prevent construction site accidents, prompting further research & development.

Key Takeaways from the Market Study

  • Boom lifts expected to yield an absolute opportunity worth US$ 2.5 Bn, registering a value CAGR of 4%
  • Construction segment to account for 37% share of boom lifts until 2031
  • North America to emerge as the dominant market, capturing 40% revenue share
  • Nearly 2/5th of global demand for aerial work platforms to be stimulated by Europe
  • Asia to be an opportunistic market, accounting for a third of the global market revenue

“As governments of several countries are re-evaluating safety standards, adoption of aerial work platforms is on the rise, with key manufacturers emphasizing on incorporating smart sensors to reduce construction fatalities”, says the Fact.MR analyst.

Competitive Landscape

The global aerial work platforms market is highly consolidated with 7-8 players accumulating 65-70% of the share. Manufacturers are focusing on product innovation in order to increase their reach and maintain their position in the market.
